Named Mavis after it's owner from 1970 - 1992.

We have owned this lovely Beetle since Nov 2008 and have just had her rebuilt. Everything done short of crank grind. Details below. She is now 1600cc and rocks along!

Whilst not perfect and no doubt suiting an enthusiast, she is in very good nick overall and very original. There is the odd tear in the upholstery and head lining here and there. The drivers seat feels as though it could do with some re-springing. There is a small dent right rear guard (see photos).

She has been repainted approx 2001 and re-rubbered, including running boards.

Has original service record folder and good historical records. Also has the original certificate of registration from 1969.

Speedo and odo are in miles.

Recent work:
New barrels, pistons and rings and bored to 1600cc.
(old barrels were found to be out of round)
New valve guides, new exhaust valves, inlet valves re-coed, valve seats re-faced, head bead blasted and resurfaced,
new gaskets, new alloy push rods and oil seals, oil cooler seals, recond inlet manifold, points, plugs, timing and tune.
Crank and clutch checked and within tolerance. New big end bearings. No oil leaks! Current reg and wof.
Feel free to call Robbie at Moutere Motors to discuss. 03 543 2707.

2009-2010 work:
New rear brake shoes and cylinders, drums overhauled, New steering box and coupling, front calipers overhauled, new shocks and new Hankook tyres.
